Montreal's Nuit Blanche Is Happening This Week With Free Things To Do Until The Wee Hours

Calling all night owls! Montreal's famous Nuit Blanche is happening this February and you're going to want to make sure your calendars are free that night.

On Saturday, February 26, 2022, a wide range of activities are being offered throughout the city to help you rediscover the beauty of Montreal in a whole new light.

Speaking of lights, there will be tons of them lit up everywhere you go that night, as this is part of the Montréal en Lumière festival.

Nuit Blanche will be filled with late-night museum visits, skating on Montreal's new downtown rink and sensory experiences like no other, which you'll be able to see as you wander through the city's streets during the wee hours.

More than 50 activities are being offered in areas all across the city, such as Downtown, Plateau-Mont-Royal, Hochelaga, Mile End, and Old Montreal.

For the museum lovers, you'll have the chance to check out unique exhibitions at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Phi Center, the McCord Museum, and Pointe-à-Callière.

Anyone who likes skating can prepare to glide their night away on the Scotiabank Skate Trail at Place des Arts. The rink will have the music playing from 9 p.m to 11 p.m.

Before that, there's going to be a free show featuring professional figure skaters on the Tranquille Esplanade rink at 6:30 p.m and 8:30 p.m.

Throughout the night, you can take a ride on the colourful Loto-Québec Ferris Wheel for a cool view of the city, sip a glass of wine at the SAQ Bistro or bite into a tasty beaver tail.

Some activities will be on until 1 a.m. and some may require you to show your vaccine passport.
